6:00 am
remembering loma prieta. a look back at the devastating earthquake, plus the unusual way responders are getting you ready for the next one. and new worries over ebola after word that a health care worker exposed to the virus is now on a cruise ship with hundreds of other passengers. and the champagne never tasted so sweet. the giants on their way now to their third world series in just five years. >> oh, what a way to start your friday! late rain on the way, not for everybody. kind of a tricky system. i'll show you that. comfy conditions as we get into your weekend. a better chance for rain on monday. we could see upwards of an inch of rain, though, as we head throughout today. not everybody is going to get it. lots to go over in your micro climate forecast in just moments. and a live look outside at at&t park this morning. things are looking pretty cleared up now. it is friday, october 17th. this is "today in the bay."
6:01 am
from nbc bay area, this is "today in the bay." it is 6:00 and we thank you for joining us this morning. i'm kris sanchez. >> i'm sam brock. what a night. >> yes yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! >> it is starting to become a familiar sight, right? but it never gets old. the giants celebrating another national league pennant and a trip to the world series, the third in just five years. >> the magical moment from this last game captured on this morning's front page of the "san francisco chronicle." travis ishikawa celebrating his historic walkoff homer. >> who is next, the kansas city royals, that's who. game one tuesday, game two wednesday. both in kansas city. then back to the bay area for game three and four, and giants'
6:02 am
fans are hopeful that's all it's going to take, just like in 2012 when the giants swept the tigers. >> the world series not only good news for the skrints and fan base, but bay area businesses are benefitting today as well. >> we own the pennant t-shirts were flying off store shelves. bob redell is live at at&t park, and bob, shirts will hit the store shelves in a matter of hours for the folks who haven't already snapped them up. >> reporter: well, they're already here at the dugout store at at&t park. kris and sam. this store doesn't open until, i don't know, a couple more hours from now. there you have it. the we own the pennant national league championship shirts. it seemed like it was going to be a good thing or a most likely thing to happen yesterday morning. that's why the people at graphics sportswear started churning these out yesterday morning in anticipation that the giants, if they didn't win last night, would definitely win in kansas city. and it was a good bet, because,
6:03 am
of course, the giants did beat the royals last night 6-3 in that walkoff homer by travis ishikawa. they are churning out 25,000 of these t-shirts over there at that t-shirt factory. such a big deal, they actually had to bring in 40 workers to start working overnight. and once the win came, they really started churning them out. so they got them here at the dugout star and will be getting them out to other retailers throughout the city and the bay area today. because, you know, a lot of fans waking up this morning want to wear something to work, school and the weekend. so the giants are taking today off. we presume that tomorrow they'll be getting training here at at&t park. tuesday and wednesday playing in kansas city against the royals, seven-game series. the world series is. and then back here friday and saturday, sunday if need be. if it need be being if they haven't beaten the royals by then. and don't get me wrong, the royals are not going to be an easy team to beat. so it will be interesting to see
6:04 am
how this series plays out. if you're thinking about actually getting tickets to the game, the good news is standing room tickets, they only start at oh, i don't know, around $520 on stub hub. they're really cheap. and then they go up from there. we went to sfgiants.com, the website and the tickets you buy from the team, at least online, are sold out. i'm trying to recall in the years -- the previous world series if they have released them the morning after, and my memory is not serving me very well right now. so there is a possibility they might be holding some and releasing at the box office. i haven't heard that. that's just something i'm trying to remember from the previous world series. again, this is the third world series for the giants in five years. pretty remarkable run they have had going here. kris, sam? >> all right. we'll google it for you, bob. >> you can go to the game, take out a second mortgage on your house and you're good to go t-shirts, this is what they look like, "we own the pennant". with their backs against the wall, michael morse launched a
6:05 am
game-tying pinch hit home run. that was a solo shot over the left field wall. to knot up the game with 3-3. and then travis ishikawa's turn to be the hero. >> travis ishikawa hits one into right! . the giants win the pennant! >> joe buck with the call there. that was a three-run walkoff home run, sending the giants into the world series. it earned ishikawa a spot in giants history, and lore as they go on to beat the cardinals 6-3. >> whilise ishikawa was the winr of the night, bumgarner earned the nlcs the most valuable player award. the giants may going to the world series, but little giants stole the show. we're going to show what buster posey's little guy had to say, coming up in about 20 minutes. and we have much more on the giants winning the pennant this morning on nbc bay area and
6:06 am
"today in the bay." you can also head to our website, nbcbayarea.com. there you can find a photo gallery and raw video of fans celebrating in the streets of san francisco. >> at second base, the oakland a's take -- take -- >> we're having an -- >> wow. >> chilling moments there. 25 years ago today it that the bay area was talking about another world series when the deadly loma prieta earthquake struck right before that game got under way. this happened during the giants and a's warmups at about 5:04:00 p.m. 30 minutes before the first pitch. that game was postponed and the a's eventually swept the series. because of the coincidence, the first earthquake in the united states ever to be broadcast on live television. >> the effects of the loma prieta earthquake were felt across the bay area in other ways. the 6.9 magnitude quake caused billions of dollars in damage and destroyed hundreds of homes,
6:07 am
killed 63 people. the earthquake's epicenter was in the santa cruz mountains and it was quick, but it was strong. in just 15 seconds, the quake shook buildings off their foundations and folded freeways like little bits of paper. the 63 people died, thousands of people were hurt. and 25 years later, the focus is now on preparedness. >> those images still burned into many people's memory's. "today in the bay" stephanie trong joins us live in the city on how people are getting ready and prepared for the next big quake. >> reporter: absolutely. good morning to you both. i remember loma prieta as well. geologists warn there is a 99.7% chance in the next 30 years the next big one will hit. and i'm sitting in the quake cottage, a mobile earthquake simulator. the point is, you never know when the next big one is going to hit, and here we go. this is a simulation of what it would be like. you see things start to drop already. lots of things not secure. apples everywhere, flowers. so we're going to bring in now -- calm this down and bring
6:08 am
in katie long, who is actually with the california office of emergency services. welcome in. now that it's all done shaking, we're safe to talk. katie, talk to us about the message here. >> well, there's a lot you can do to make yourself safer during an earthquake. one of the things is to protect yourself during shaking by doing drop, cover, hold. but you don't want to lose grandma's china so don't put it on the top shelf and secure with earthquake putty. but move things. don't put a bookshelf right in front of the door so you can't get out. or secure it. you want your stuff to last and not fall and hurt you. >> reporter: absolutely. and we just had the south napa quake, a woman killed because a tv hit her head. >> and it was a $6 strap that could have saved her life. so just look around your house and strap things down v. enough water, have enough food to get you through the first few days. that will make a big difference on how soon you get your life back. >> reporter: and people don't
6:09 am
realize until it hits just how strong. i mean, if you didn't experience loma prieta, talk about that, the importance of, the critical points of what people need to do. >> well, earthquake shaking can be really strong and you don't know if it's going to be big or little. so as soon as you feel those first waves, drop, get low so your center of gravity is low. you don't want to be knocked down. protect your head and neck. you want to make yourself a small target. and if you can get under something or next to something sturdy, protect yourself from flying and falling objects. that's the most important thing. you've got to act quick. >> reporter: perfect. thank you, katie. really appreciate it. running out of time. i want to show you the $6 strap she was talking about. this is called a safety-proof strap. six bucks and can hold up to 300 pounds. you might want to do that. also we're at the exploratorium where this is going on and pg&e and american red cross are giving away free things. a couple things here, safety kit they have batteries and thermoses and things like that. so we'll show you more coming up in about 40 minutes or so. more on the emergency

6:11 am
little shower activity. i would hate to have you get rained on, and i didn't warn you. so keep your umbrella handy for today. but the chance of getting any sort of significant rainfall south of the golden gate bridge not likely. north of the golden gate bridge, very likely. we could tally up significant totals. 60 degrees for san francisco. 57 on the east shore and peninsula at 56 degrees. keep the umbrella by your side today. it's going to be kind of cool but not too bad. i love these beautiful fall days when you don't have to use your ac. really nice. and temperatures will stay comfortable as we head throughout this weekend, as well. and the raiders have a home game. temperatures looking good. 72 degrees. right around kickoff on sunday at 1:25. they're taking on the cardinals. and you know what? sam, i know you're a sports guy. big says there is about a 77% chance the raiders will lose this game. another reason to search google, my friends. another reason to search google. let's go, raiders, we still know you guys are a great team and we

6:16 am
showers. 64 degrees on saturday, half moon bay. sunday, 62. we do have rain, though, to talk b. i'm going to show you the storm systems, and what i'm thinking as far as timing and totals go in moments. and here are today's top stories. golden gate buses will be running as planned. the union has reached a tentative deal with the bridge district, but not a done deal. union members still need to vote on that plan. 880 in fremont open now. last night police shut down the freeway around the mowry exit to look for an around suspect connectsed to a violent crime in fremont. officers did not find the suspect, but reopened the highway around 10:00 last night. excitement is contagious this morning. the giants capture the pennant for the third time in five years. san francisco headed to the world series. the win, courtesy of a walkoff three-run homer by travis ishikawa. game one of the world series will be tuesday night in kansas city.
6:17 am
this morning, shortly after the game ended, a brawl broke out near the ballpark. police say a group of fans got into a fight around 10:00 last night near third and channel streets, someone firing a gun, causing the group to scatter. police do not believe anyone was shot, but one person was taken to the hospital with a broken nose. it is unclear why the brawl started. we move now to a developing story garnering international attention. a health care worker who handled a lab specimen from thomas duncan has now quarantined herself on a cruise ship this morning. duncan, of course, the man who died last week in dallas from ebola, officials say there was no travel ban when she left, and she is not evidenced any symptoms to this point in the last 19 days. meantime, ebola patient nina pham last dallas last night, arriving at the national institutes of health in maryland just around midnight. the 26-year-old nurse was the first of two texas nurses who got the virus while treating duncan. now pham has been in isolation since saturday. officials say she is stable and
6:18 am
doing reasonably well this morning. the second nurse who contracted ebola, amber vinson, is being cared for at emory university hospital in atlanta. last night her family released a statement thanking supporters. vinson is reportedly stable and doctors are working on a treatment process for her. there are no known ebola patients in california, but first responders are getting ready just in case. san francisco's department of emergency management has issued new protocol this morning. 911 dispatchers will ask callers a series of questions, such as have you been out of the country in the last 21 days. if the caller has symptoms possibly related to ebola, first responders will know to show up with protective equipment. meantime, stanford medical center is sharing this video of health care professionals, practicing putting on and taking off their protective gear. that includes full-body, full skin covering, a helmet and a communications system. lawmakers right now pressuring president obama to ban travel from west africa, but the president says a ban might prompt travelers to hide where they're coming from, increasing our risk. he's also considering a
6:19 am
so-called ebola czar, a government official to oversee the entire response. that could include reserves and the national guard. we have complete up to the minute coverage of the ebola scare on our website, nbcbayarea.com. kris? >> thank you very much. a strong storm could gain strength as it brushes past hawaii. we also have continuing coverage of the ebola scare on our website, nbcbayarea.com. and on the weather front, though, yesterday, hawaii's governor declared a state of emergency while volunteers went door to door, warning people of dangerous surf and storm surges. forecasters say tropical storm anna could become a hurricane. it is expected to hit the big island tonight into tomorrow morning. some areas will see destructive winds as well as up to 20 inches of rain. this is in the same area that was hard hit just two months ago by tropical storm iselle. a check of what's going on outside right now. 6:19 on your friday morning. sounds so good to say friday. this, of course, the view from
6:20 am
san bruno mountain on a sleepy san francisco that is also a very excited san francisco, given what happened last night. fans are going to be out, i'm sure celebrating. what kind of weather can they expect? >> probably some restlesses fans too out there. >> that adrenaline. >> you know what, though, it is such a good story to tell. 6:20. so interesting, the a's came out. they looked so good at the start of the season. the giants kind of, you know, like the tortoise and the hare. let's go back to the tropical storm impacting the hawaiian islands. i have more good news for you. this thing is going to hook away and head back out to sea. it doesn't look like it's even going to take a direct hit. we're talking about the hawaiian islands, looked originally like oahu would get hit hard. now, anna, 70-mile-an-hour wind speeds. the next 24 hours, likely strengthening to a category 1 storm. we started a cat 1 storm at 74
6:21 am
miles per hour. and you do want to keep that in mind. it's still going to weaken yet again and kind of brush, it looks like kauai, but not take a direct hit. that's good news when it comes to tropical storm anna. i know a lot of people like to head over there this time of year from the bay area. and i have friends over there right now. so that's really good news. rain approaching from nor cal, and this comes the second half of the day, mostly impacting regions to the north of the golden gate bridge. as per usual. nonetheless, we'll take every drop of rain we can get. and we typically average higher totals up in the north bay anyway. so this is pretty normal. 54 degrees. in the south bay, pretty start, chilly, might have to run your ac a little later on today in the trivalley as we get into the 80s. probably not. temperatures right at room temperature across the board for the south bay. we're talking about the peninsula in the 70s for today and even the east shore. now as we head throughout your weekend, maybe a little bit of shower activity early saturday, not expecting much. we'll bring that rain right back
6:22 am
in as we head into your monday. and that's when we're expecting pretty decent downpours, even here in the south bay. by tuesday, staying nice and cool. the storm track south of the bay area. so the window stays open. we just need storm systems to aride that jet stream like a conveyor belt before they can end up in the bay area. let's switch gears and talk about your drive. this crash reportedly clearing now. westbound 92 on the san mateo bridge at clawiter, crash blocking the right-hand lane now. as it clears, a little lag effect. residual delays once you get past that accident. overall, looking pretty good, except for the bay bridge. starting to see some significant stackup now, the metering lights on and looking okay right now through the south bay. that's where we're seeing that friday light 101 at 280, looking okay. we'll keep you updated. back to you, sam and kris. >> thank you, christina. time is now 6:22. up next, little giants. how the players' kids stole the show after last night's amazing win.

californians are discovering the real risks behind prop 46. it was written and paid for by the trial lawyers to make them millions... while, for the rest of us, health care costs go up. no wonder every major newspaper in the state opposes prop 46. they say 46 "overreached in a decidedly cynical way." it's a ploy "for trial lawyers to enrich themselves." and prop 46 has "too many potential drawbacks to be worth the risk." time to vote no on prop 46. on the move, a nurse fighting ebola is waking up in a new hospital this morning. the reason behind that careful transfer, next. and good morning. you made it to friday. we've got some rain on the way for some spots across the bay

"today in the bay"'s bob redell joining us in the ballpark. the excitement of orange october not only good for the giants but also for local businesses, as well. good morning. >> reporter: yeah, good morning to you, sam and kris. you think about it, the giants went into the postseason as a wild card. and here they are, proud to say they won, they own the pennant. those t-shirts going on sale here at the giants' dugout store. and, of course, they can put that claim to fame because of the 21st century version of that shot heard round the world, courtesy last night of travis ishikawa. i'm talking about that walkoff three-run home run hit that clinched the series against the cardinals, 6-3 last night.
6:50 am
the people who are getting these t-shirts, you can imagine, once they realized the team won, they had to go into overdrive. they have been churning out those t-shirts at graphic sportswear ever since. they are the we are the pennant t-shirts. presumably a lot of fans picking these up when the doors open here and other locations later today. the manager of the company tells us he had to call in about 40 workers who spent all night running the machines so that 25,000 shirts could be ready by 6:00 this morning. here's a portion of our interview with the company from last night. >> we got a head start this morning. so being up 3-1, we were confident. so we did print several thousand shirts this morning. as soon as the home run was hit, the machines fired up again. >> reporter: to understand the team today, the giants will
6:51 am
train tomorrow. tuesday and wednesday, as you guys mentioned, they were playing the royals in kansas city. and back here in san francisco for games four, five, game five, game six if need be. if you're trying to get tickets to at&t park for next friday, saturday, sfgiants.com. they were sold out. but we went to stub hub, and the starting tickets for standing room only, yeah, only $500 and change. so unfortunately, they're not doing layaway. so it is going to cost a chunk of change if you want to get you and your loved one or family into the world series here. but again, it's a historical moment. think about it. it's the third world series for the giants in just five years. kris, sam. >> all right. thank you, bob. standing room only. if you've been saving your money for weeks and anticipated this. good luck. >> yeah. 6:51 now. as bob mentioned, the hero this morning is travis ishikawa. his story amazing. considering just a couple months ago he was thinking of quitting baseball all together.
6:52 am
>> yeah, he won a national -- rather, world series ring with the giants in 2010 but moved around the league the last three seasons with milwaukee, baltimore, the yankees and most recently the pirates who cut him in april of this year. six days later, signed a meaner league contract with the giants while he mulled over quitting all together. after the game, ishikawa was understandably emotional. >> you can't describe it. it's a dream come true, you know, with what i've been through the last few years, not even knowing if i was going to be in the big leagues again or continue playing at the end of the season. to be in this moment right now, it's just -- it's special. >> when asked about that walkoff home run, ishikawa says he was so excited, he can't remember anything after the ball snuck over the right field. we'll remember it for you, travis. more on the giants winning the pennant on our website, nbcbayarea.com where you can find a photo gallery of all the best moments and raw video on

6:54 am
foundations and pulled at freeways like little bits of paper. 63 people died, thousands of people were hurt. and 25 years later, the focus is still on preparedness. >> that is front and center today. "today in the bay"'s stephanie trong is in the city where we are getting a live look at shaking action and top tips, stephanie, on what you should do. >> reporter: absolutely. good morning to you, sam and kris. you know, i'm sitting here with katie long with the california office of emergency services. getting ready to feel the shaking here in the quake cottage, because you really never know how strong the shaking can be. and this demonstrates exactly that. there is no exact magnitude, but you see here, things start to fall. you've got your vitamins and -- there go -- the apples go. there we go. yeah. and so this shows you just how intense it can be. so katie, talk to me about the objects. that's really what's important here, right? >> well, i think the number-one thing that can hurt in an earthquake is your stuff falling and flying. so it's really important that
6:55 am
you secure it, because not only do you want to protect yourself, you want to know that you're going to have your television after the earthquake. >> reporter: we know in the napa quake a woman was killed because a tv hit her. >> that's absolutely right. your stuff is really dangerous. that's the number one cause of injury during an earthquake. >> reporter: katie, what do we do in this situation? >> well, we're not sitting here like this. we're going to drop, cover and hold on. so that's get low so the earthquake doesn't knock you down. protect your head and neck. and if you can get you said some shelter, hang on to it. >> reporter: and for people who can't drop? >> well, just keep -- stay seated and get low and protect your head and neck. >> reporter: so katie and i are both going to demonstrate what to do. here we go. okay, perfect. okay. so you just drop again, hold on tight, and hold on, right? cover and hold. okay. so thank you, katie so much. i'm going to walk over here. you can notice that everything else fell down here, but this big gigantic did not.
6:56 am
it's being held by a strap. it's $6 called safety proof and can hold up to 300 pounds. so that's why this was able to stay here and not fall like everything else. i also want to mention, we're at the exploratorium, where a lot of these activities are happening this morning. and all throughout today. starting at noon until 7:00, the american red cross and pg&e are passing out kits for free. i want to show what you can have. you've got gloves here. you've got flashlights, l.e.d. flashlights. first aid kit very important. hand sanitizer. again, this is being passed out in emergency preparedness, sort of message here at exploratorium. so come on down here, and they've got a lot to show you. for now, live in san francisco, stephanie trong, "today in the bay." >> after that second round, i'm afraid for you, steph. you've got to sit down. >> reporter: i'm heading back now, yeah. >> simulating what it would be like during an earthquake. thank you, stephanie. we spoke with a couple who

lost their home during the loma prieta earthquake. this is the initial interview done in 1989. this week we checked back home with them. their home was ripped from the foundation, shoved eight feet down the slope. it took three-and-a-half years, they tell us, to rebuild. >> we have a house we really love now and we'll probably stay here forever. it's a sad story with a happy ending, if that makes sense. >> that house looks completely different from the outside. the only thing remaining is parts of the wooden frame and a fireplace inside the exact same design. >> complete coverage of the 25th anniversary of the loma prieta quake on our website, nbcbayarea.com. you can see pictures there, as well as videos from the day the disaster struck. also get tips on preparedness. a lot of memories flooding back for folks today, rightfully so. 6:57 now on your friday. one final check of the day's top stories. police in the east bay looking for a man they say is armed and dangerous. as part of their search last night, police shut down interstate 8820 in fremont for
